Werder Bremen vs Stuttgart
Date: Friday, 22 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Weserstadion (Bremen).
Stuttgart continued to struggle last weekend when they fell 1-3 at home to RB Leipzig. It was the fourth defeat in five league games this year for Markus Weinzierl’s men who are just two points adrift of the rock bottom of the Bundesliga ladder.
Weinzierl is desperate to find the right formation which would keep things quiet at the back for Stuttgart. The Reds are very easy to break down at the start of the year and the lack of defensive meticulousness is what actually prevents them from initiating a positive thread. The visitors shipped three or more goals in four of five league outings in 2019.
Werder Bremen vs Stuttgart: Head-to-head
Teams have 36 wins apiece coming into their 105th head to head meeting.
Stuttgart came on top (2-1) when these two likes met each other in this term of Bundesliga.
Die Werderaner are, however, much more successful in H2H matches on the hoe patch where they won 25, drew 15 and lost 12 of 52.
Werder Bremen vs Stuttgart: Prediction
Werder made an incomparably better start to the year. They are unbeaten in six matches in all competitions and they even managed to knock current Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund out of the German DFB Pokal on penalties (3-3 after 120 minutes of play at Signal-Iduna-Park).
The host bagged six goals in last two games at Weserstadion (a 2-2 draw to Hoffenheim and a 4-0 win over Augsburg). They will certainly fancy their chances of maintaining such tremendous attacking form against the struggling defensive line of Stuttgart’s here.
The home win looks like a genuine banker at 1.53 odds as both form and H2H tradition at Weserstadion suggest such scenario. You will get the same odds for backing Werder Bremen to net two or more goals. We will alternatively back the home win & Over 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 2.20.
